"Marie's" coleslaw dressing imitation ?

DH loves this stuff. I have to admit, it's very good. But, I am trying to eliminate any and all pre-packaged foods in my kitchen. Especially the ones at almost three bucks per small jar.

Any good coleslaw dressing recipes out there?

This is my coleslaw dressing recipe. My DH loves it too.

2 cups Miracle Whip
1/2 cup Sugar
1/4 cup Vinegar
1/4 cup Vegetable oil

Miracle whip, vinegar, and oil, Sugar. Mix smooth.
Taste should be sweet with just a hint of vinegar.
Amount of slaw dressing may be increased or decreased according to the amount of slaw you are making.
Add to cut up cabbage or other vegs and Mix well. Let stand 1-hour if possible to let flavors mix.

I've tried looking for a copycat of the dressing recipe you wanted but didn't find it but will still keep looking after get up tomorrow.

We do the copycat of KFC slaw....
Personally I usually cut way down on the lemon juice in it.
Never had the Marie's dressing so I don't know any substitutes for it.

Here is my cole slaw dressing recipe. My mother said it was the best she ever had.

1 cup mayonnaise (I use homemade)
3 T. white vinegar
3 T. white sugar
1/4 t. celery salt (more or less to taste, depending on the saltiness of your brand)
Pinch of black pepper

Mix everything and add just enough to coat salad ingredients.

This is my grandmothers' recipe I am using it still to this day. It is so good that I now have to make all slaws at family get togethers.

Miricle whip and evaporated canned milk mixed to the thickness you like, add vinegar preferable aple cider and sugar also to taste, add black pepper and mix.I make this in quart jars and just shake as I go. I will try to measure next time and will put the measurments on here.
